$1 000 000. What amount did he receive the last week?

  • Math - ,

    looks like an arithmetic series where
    a = 1 , d = 2, n = ?
    Sum(n) = 1000000

    (n/2)(2 + (n-1)(2) ) = 1000000
    n( 2 + 2n - 2) = 2000000
    2n^2 = 2000000
    n^2 = 1000000
    n = 1000

    so term (1000) = a + 999d = 1 + 2(999) = 1999
